There is nothing like a refreshing shower to wash away the worries of the day! With a job as big as raising the Moon and helping to run a country I bet Luna really does enjoy a moment of relaxing in the water.
News time my friends! Get it after the break!

Description: There is a village where everypony can be the same.
You may have read some nasty things about it. Rumors of stolen cutie marks and power-mad unicorns. Tall tales about forced smiles and frightened glances.
It's all lies. All except the part about us wanting to escape. That's true.
It's why we came here in the first place.

Seeing AJ in that jacket reminds me of varsity jackets from back in high school. I wonder what sort of sports each of the ponies would play? I know we saw from of that in EqG, but what about our pony versions?
Evening guys! Another day of pony at an end. Ready to chat?
"Open a World of Possible"—Scholastic Book Fair
There was one other piece of news that came out of Awesome Con. Something that parents of kids who are fans of the My Little Pony Comics should probably pay attention to.
IDW and Scholastic have brought the My Little Pony Comic line to Scholastic Book Fairs in Schools all around the country.
Not only that, but they have exclusive trade variant covers to boot. You can find the whole story of how I stumbled upon this little surprise—as well as a look at the next exclusive Trade Edition Cover—after the break!
Four awesome characters appeared in the Smooze episode, and you all apparently loved it. I for one am still obsessed with Tree Hugger, even if she lost that last poll horribly. Poor Tree Hugger.
And onward to the next poll:
Equestria Girls: Did you see the 2nd movie? Did you like it? Are you looking forward to the next one?
Hit it up on the side bar!
And get the results of this one below the break.
Hasbro continues it's Blindbag release schedule, with the full set of them appearing over on Entertainment Earth. This one looks to be going with the glittery theme again, with a few unique ponies to top it off.

Description: Rainbow Dash has a problem.Dreams and Disasters
She might be in love with Twilight Sparkle and has yet to admit it to anypony, least of all Twilight herself. After the events of Vanilla Twilight, the two have grown much closer together, spending more time together and sharing their interests. Unfortunately for Dash, Twilight hasn't caught on to her feelings yet, and she could be content with just letting things progress as they are...
If only she hadn't sent that blasted letter admitting it.
Now, thanks to a pair of meddling princesses, Rainbow Dash finds herself on a globe-trotting journey with the subject of her affections. On the surface, it might just seem like a simple task for the Princess, but for Rainbow Dash, it might be the very thing that forces her to come clean with her feelings, or forever face her doubts. For her, in the world of life and love, sometimes it's best to take it one dream and disaster at a time.

While there were no ponies last weekend, Discovery Family did air all the Rainbow Rocks shorts and the ratings are in for those of you who love numbers! According to TV Media Insights the shorts garnered 299k viewers. Not too bad for a bunch of shorts!
With the 100th episode just around the corner I'm expecting some crazy numbers as Discovery Family seems to be promoting it like crazy. Onward and upward my friends!
Thanks to Andrew for sending in the info.
She acted all sweet and innocent, but we knew what was really going on. World domination was her goal all along. Don't believe her lies!
Good news for Meghan McCarthy! Hasbro has absorbed her as the Head of Storytelling for their entire girls portfolio. Considering she already has a hand in seemingly most of it, I guess that isn't too big a surprise. The Deadline Hollywood article cites My Little Pony and Littlest Pet Shop in particular, with the upcoming movies added to the list.
Will we see more madness migrate over to the other brands? I wouldn't mind some Pinkamena style antics invading Hasbro's other IP. I said it yesterday, having that in pony really helped bring in a lot of people, at least from my standpoint.
Thanks to John Mellen, PinkiePie97 and Masem for sending it.
Our Balloon Pony has been really busy lately! While it has been awhile since we've heard from him, he has delivered by giving us not one, but two balloon creations from recent episode. Plus he promises something big for episode 100 so look forward to that!
Check after the break for the rest of the pictures and a time lapse video of the Bulk Biceps and Spike balloon sculptures.
No pony can hold onto their magic forever. Inevitably, a pony's body will be broken, and their magic will return to the air and soil. Celestia has held onto her magic for a very long time.
After many long years of preparation, the time for Twilight to succeed Celestia as Bearer of the Sun has come. But as the abdication ceremony in which Celestia will relinquish her power approaches, Twilight begins to desperately search for a way to stop the dread ritual of the ceremony and save her friend.

Comic: Who You Gonna Call? / Usurped / The Shocker! / Second Guessing / King and I 6 / To Love Alicorn 3by Calpain
I think the CMC are getting just a bit too mischievous with their adventures. If Canterlot falls off the mountain it's on I bet you can plain these three for it.
Comics guys! Click for full! The Shocker comic is a bit more mature so just a fair warning!
I used to get my share of scrapes back when I was a kid and they always seemed like the worst thing ever, even when they were minor. Don't worry Twilight, Celestia will make it all better!
Morning everyone! Ready for a little chat?
